REL's contribution has a title that says it all: "WOW!" He sums up the emotional jouney of the season's first win, and expects another tough challenge at the home of our good friends, Neath.

Team to play at Neath
Jason Strange has announced the starting line up for Saturday's visit to play Neath at the Gnoll:
Dan Haymond, Wes Cunliffe, Nathan Preece, Adam Jones, Owen Williams; Iain Smerdon, Chris Thomas; Ross Jones, Mathew Williams, Gethin Robinson; Damien Hudd,  Ashley Sweet; Cameron Regan, Ronny Kynes, Spencer Gibson. Bench: John Lavender, Joe Franchi, Rob Sevenoaks, Rhys Clarke, Aaron Harris, Rhys Downes, Ethan Davies, Jordan Howells..

The only change sees Chris Thomas get the nod following his appearance off the bench last week. Jason said, "We were elated after last week's win over Llandovery, and we're looking forward to visiting Neath, although we're expecting another very tough game. They're a good side with some outstanding individual players and very experienced coaches. All we are aiming to do, as we have done for the last four seasons, is to improve from game to game. The competition within the squad is intensifying and the players know they have to perform at the top of their game."
